    I'll be honest, I really don't like lawyers. I also hate that I have to go through so many hoops to be covered with DMCA for my communities / forums. I also despise legal paperwork and processes.

    So, after some digging, I found a WONDERFUL solution to all my problems! I've been using for about a year and a half for all my DMCA troubles.

    Every interaction with them has been phenomenal and... dare I say... pleasant! :eek:

    If you need a DMCA agent and/or help navigating all the processes, etc., definitely reach out to them!

    $70/year for 20 sites/apps? Seems like a cheap service. But this is kind of like having a designated agent for an LLC or 501c3, which similarly costs about $100-$200/year if you need one

    It seems to me that all they do is forward the complaints to you, which doesn't really safe work.

    Evaluating and responding are where the cost are.

    How many forums get enough DMCA notices to even need anything like this ?

    AFAIK, If you do not have a registered DMCA agent, you strictly speaking do not qualify for DMCA safe harbor. If your hosting provider doesn't pass on notices they receive, you may have your site suspended/terminated unexpectedly.

    That said most complaints just end if you take down the content.

    But I'm not a lawyer, so seek actual legal advise on how this impacts you and any relationship with your providers.

    ^ this, as I understand it this is just another thing to do. Kind of like when you have a business entity, you need to designate a registered agent. They just do this for you

    Then there's this
    So the question is, it is worth having to learn how to do all this stuff yourself of is it a more valuable use of your time to pay someone $70/year to do it all for you so you can do stuff that makes you money insteadl

    This is the thing people are forgetting....

    Just signed up. We were just hit by a very well known copyright infringement troll who found an obscure image someone posted in 2017. Demanding thousands of dollars in settlement. DMCA safe harbor is where it's at, and no way I'm going to list my personal info as public contact.

    Their FAQ is hilarious.
